A Great Idea...If You Have the Time

by Armen

While wiping away the tears at the loss of my clearly overrated but beloved Bruins, I managed to read O'Connor's dissent in South Dakota v. Dole, 483 U.S. 203 (1987) (arguing that the U.S. does not have the power to tie Fed highway funds to the condition that the States raise the minimum drinking age to 21). This got me thinking about just HOW do the views of Alito and O'Connor line up on the issues that the two have had the occasion to write about. I don't imagine that this would be too difficult on either lexis or westlaw, although I expect it to be very time consuming and hence why I'm not doing it. I eagerly await results (though I still believe that O'Connor was not as moderate as advertised, i.e., she and Alito probably line up far more than both liberals and conservatives would like).
